Leading the Eyesight

This is the entry to “CEE’S COMPOSE YOURSELF CHALLENGE: WEEK #5 Leading Lines”.

A leading line in photography, as I have understand, is to lead the viewers’ sights towards an important elements in an image, or to guide viewers observe something significant along it.  The following two images illustrate these two functions of a leading line.

A leading line doesn’t have to lay horizontally, it can be vertical as this,

It doesn’t have to be straight, it can be swirling as this,

It doesn’t have to be lifeless, it can be decorated with people as this,

It is always fun to identify a potential leading line before press the shutter, as well as to see something interesting along the leading line in an image.
